1. Faith of our fathers, living still, In spite of dungeon, fire, and sword! Oh, how our hearts beat high with joy Whene’er we hear that glorious Word!
Refrain: Faith of our fathers, holy faith! We will be true to thee till death.
2. Our fathers, chained in prisons dark, Were still in heart and conscience free. Lord, grant their children strength and love, Like them, to live and die for thee!
3. Faith of our fathers! We will love Both friend and foe in all our strife; And preach thee, too, as love knows how, By kindly words and virtuous life.
